Nordic-based data-center company Hyperco has announced the appointment of Joachim Kauppi as chief commercial officer, developing commercial relationships and strengthening the region’s profile as a burgeoning location for sustainable data-center operations.
Based in Stockholm, Kauppi will begin his new role immediately.
Kauppi joins Hyperco from Stack Infrastructure (formerly DigiPlex), where he headed international sales and helped to showcase the Nordics as a sustainable and economically viable data-center location. He has previously held positions at Equinix and TelecityGroup, and has been repeatedly recognized in recent years as one of the young professionals most capably leading the industry in innovative directions.
‘I’ve been fortunate enough to work as an advocate for Nordic and European data infrastructure solutions,’ said Kauppi, ‘paying special attention to hyperscale customer needs and helping them to understand and engage more meaningfully with these markets. I’m looking forward to playing an important role in Hyperco’s journey, highlighting new possibilities and supporting the leading technology companies wherever they need capacity.’
Hyperco is a Nordic real-estate development company focused on building, developing and owning the data centers of the future. In June the firm made its debut transaction with the purchase of a €35 mln asset in Helsinki.
